Switcher Studio v3.3 Features Completely Redesigned UI, Adds In-App Facebook Live Comment Monitoring, and Ability to Add and Sync Up to Nine Cameras
LOUISVILLE, KY (June 21, 2017) – Switcher Inc. (www.switcherstudio.com) today announced it is returning to VidCon 2017 in Anaheim, CA this week with some big updates to its video platform with the launch of Switcher Studio v3.3.
The launch of Switcher Studio v3.3 – the Company’s flagship mobile multi-camera video software for iPhones and iPads – brings new features ideally suited for YouTube and Facebook Live Creators, including in-app Facebook Live comment monitoring, the ability to sync up to nine cameras at once, as well as a brand new interface with an intuitive new design for quickly and easily adding photos, pre-recorded videos and overlays to their live and recorded videos.
New Design Creates Intuitive User Experience
Mobile video creators new to Switcher Studio will benefit from the intuitive redesign, with streamlined new controls for quickly adding photos, videos and overlays to Facebook Live broadcasts. Creators can also rearrange and organize assets for easy management with the new UI, and can even display more sources simultaneously. The new Switcher design now allows users to scale assets to display in 2, 3, or 4 columns for quicker access or easier viewing.
Advanced users can enable the Preview window and use the workspace to further enhance their productions, including the ability to:
- Use the Preview window to adjust camera controls, such as white balance and exposure, before switching to a camera source;
- Build a muiti-view effect or side-by-side effect then push to the live broadcast;
- Pair Switcher Studio with the DJI Osmo Mobile gimbal for remote pan-tilt-zoom control of a remote iPhone camera.
In previous versions of Switcher users had to monitor comments from a second device. This update adds the ability to see comments from viewers of Facebook Live broadcasts directly in the Switcher Studio app. This cloud service loads in real-time so creators can interact and engage with their audience during Facebook Live broadcasts.
Sync Up to Nine Cameras at Once
Switcher Studio v3.3 also expands the standard four camera setup to allow access to as many as nine simultaneous camera inputs. By running the Switcher Studio app on multiple iOS devices, users are able to switch between each camera in perfect sync. Cameras appear on the main iPhone or iPad used for video switching in the order they are connected. Remote cameras also show a tag to indicate the number associated with the camera source. This is helpful when managing a crew and the operator or director needs to quickly identify a cameraman or source.
In addition, Switcher Studio 3.3.0 implements a new API call to prevent the “broadcast error” message when ending a Facebook Live broadcast. Now Facebook Live videos made with Switcher Studio will appear for replay almost immediately after ending your broadcast.
